I dont have any insurence to go to the emergancy room. But I know that I have an earifection and I wanted to know if any one knew of anything that you can do to help clear it up over the counter? There are homeopathic things you can do but are they safe for pregancy? I am 36 weeks.

Antibiotics are the only thing I know that treats and ear infection. I am kinda in the same boat as you but I have asthma. When ever I feel an upper respiritory infection coming on I can my ob and tell her that I need antibiotics, then an hour or two later I pick it up from walgreens.

go to a regular dr. the office visit is usually 60 bucks...don't do anything or take anything unless your dr tells you it is safe. there are some antibiotics you can take but some herbs and over the counter stuff is very harmful to you and the baby. If you don't have a regular dr...go find one!!!
